Originally built in the 12th century, and expanded in the 14th century, this French castle has been completely restored and offers medieval charm and modern comfort.

Le Château de Pouzilhac was initially a royal castle, but was passed on to the House of Uzes by King Philip IV in the late 13th-century. The castle includes four towers that are linked by a wall, and can be entered through a portcullis gate.

Inside, one can find 25 rooms (including 12 bedrooms) that include Renaissance and baroque features, including a 17th century fresco-painted ceiling. Walking through the courtyard one will find terraces, hanging gardens and a swimming pool. The property also has guest houses, stables and a chapel.
